‘Only those who get upset over losing what they believe to be rightfully theirs are truly alive. I ought not to acknowledge that. Being respectable equals being dead and I see no trouble in continuing to be in that fashion.’
My new project is dedicated to the period of Clive's and Anne's engagement. These few months do not stand out much in the original novel and much less in fhe film. It left me to wonder how Clive truly felt about Maurice, the man he loved and who would be abandoned after the wedding. And of course, I was mighty worried about Maurice, who was about to lose everything he lived for.
This is a gift to two fellow fanfic writers, Julie_Anne and Annethepancake whose works I absolutely adore and whose inspiring comments on my other works gave me endless joy...Thank you, merci mille fois, dankjewel, obrigada eternamente!
Spoiler alert: Like my previous fic 'Under the Waves', this is not a fun ride with 21th-century characters living in a mess of cars and cats. However, I wanted it to be a light read with only a wee pinch of tragedy.
